Shelter Red has been splitting sabres in Portland, Oregon since 2003. "The Split Sabre" is the follow up to 2009’s mind-blowing release, “Strike a Mortal Terror," With a sound being described as quite technical, metal, and completely original, Shelter Red doesn’t look to fit into any genre or style and doesn’t plan on conforming to any of the masses. While most instrumental albums usually seem to have a bit of a lull in them, SR seems to avoid that pitfall and actually relish in the fact that they don’t need voices to make phenomenal music. They have built a fan base from the ground up, which started in Portland and has worked its way nation wide, through talent, touring, and an astonishing live show. 2013 is Shelter Red’s year to break out and there is no doubt that “The Split Sabre” is the perfect way to get it started.
For fans of Russian Circles, Animals as Leaders, and Don Caballero.
